Barrick Museum of Art

The institution formerly known as the Barrick Museum turned 50 this year, and 50 is clearly the new 20, because UNLV’s newly named Barrick Museum of Art can proudly flaunt its assets. This year has featured a lineup of engaging exhibits showcasing talented contemporary artists, celebrity guest appearances (such as an exhibit of Salvador Dalí–illustrated books) and smart curation of the museum’s collections, which include artwork from the Las Vegas Art Museum and the state’s Dorothy and Herbert Vogel 50×50 Collection, as well as a large number of cultural artifacts.
